Artificial sweeteners could promote diabetes and obesity, new research shows

Research from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel has recently revealed a common misconception regarding the effects of artificial sweeteners. While artificial sweeteners are often found in “diet” foods because they are a low-calorie, zero-carbohydrate substitute for sugar, they have proven to “actually increase weight gain and raise the risk of metabolic disorders” (Artificial Sweeteners Could Promote Diabetes and Obesity, New Research Shows). Experiments done by the research group showed consistent correlation between the consumption of artificial sweeteners and multiple factors that lead to obesity, a global issue that the sugar substitute is supposed to help reduce.
